Margate & Atlantic City Schools Spend Most Per Student

Atlantic City High School Education

Once again, Atlantic City was one of the top spenders per-student in larger, New Jersey school districts. Margate and Brigantine have some of the highest costs per-pupil in smaller, NJ school districts.

Costs per pupil don’t include expenses like transportation, construction debt and tuition for out-of-district programs.
